I went to Menards today for a part and decided to check out a 7" pair of Knipex pliers. It was a big mistake, I never should have handled them. As soon as they were in my hands I experienced a euphoric primal urge to never part with this tool. My first impression before seeing them in person was that they would be big and clunky. They are much smaller than I thought they were going to be. I went with the 7". Someone already mentioned that he bought a 7" pair of these and uses it in his motorcycle tool kit, but most of the time he uses them in his garage on projects. That is my plan for them. I agree, that they will probably not see a lot of use in my moto tool kit, but there is an added sense of security knowing you have a tool that is less likely to damage the crap out of a bolt head.
